Thursday Night Football this week on the NFL  Network has brought us a match up between two struggling teams in the Houston Texans and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

However, when you really think of that word “struggling,” does it really pertain to our athletes?

If there are any people who struggle, it’s out military. They struggle day in and day out to ensure that we have all of the freedom that we currently enjoy today.

That’s why it’s always nice to see one of our troops have a moment here back in the United States that they can truly enjoy, because they deserve it.

Tonight at the game, this marine grabbed his moment when he proposed to his girlfriend in front of thousands of onlookers, to which she seems to have responded with a resounding, “YES!”:

Forget the two teams that are playing this evening, there is probably nothing better that can happen tonight in Jacksonville than this. Always great to see these moments, something that will never get old.
